A mineral occurrence discovered "near" Bennachie Car Park (probably the Back o' Bennachie Car Park, south of the village of Oyne, Scotland. The Back o' Bennachie Car Park is a small dirt covered margin of a small little traveled road. The car park is small and could possibly accommodate about 10 precisely parked vehicles. The location of the discovery spot was supposedly a granite outcrop on the "eastern end" of the Bennachie Car Park. This is a sparely tree covered area. Given the vagueness of "near," the location might not be discoverable without a guide.
